Aventurine is a microcrystalline quartz that contains various mineral inclusions that give it a sparkling appearance. Aventurine is usually green, but it can also be peach, brown or blue. It is similar in appearance to amazonite, malachite or jade and is also used to create jewelry and decorative objects.

The name Aventurine comes from the Italian a ventura which means “by chance”. It is a popular lucky charm for gamblers carried in the left pocket.
